You'll be within walking distance of gorgeous beaches and the heart of downtown Oak Bluffs at this three-bedroom Martha's Vineyard home, a light-filled escape with a private deck, a beautifully appointed interior, and a convenient in-town location with a tranquil out-of-town feel.
Tucked away on an unpaved road just a few blocks from Sunset Lake, this multi-level home sits three-quarters of a mile from the Oak Bluffs Steamship Authority and the mouth of Oak Bluffs Harbor. Swimmers and sunbathers will be only half a mile south of East Chop Beach, one mile east of Eastville Beach, and one mile west of Inkwell Beach.
Where the home's exterior is classic and shingled, the interior is open, lofty, and bathed in natural light. Kick off your flip-flops by the door, throw your bathing suits and towels in the private washer/dryer, and spend the afternoon lounging on the sofas in the living room. Use the WiFi to post a few photos of your day at the beach, and shuffle a deck of cards for a game of Crazy Eights with your kids.
You'll find plenty of space for your groceries in the full kitchen, which features new appliances, a spacious refrigerator for fresh lobsters and steamers, and a floor plan that opens to the living room. Begin each morning with a homemade breakfast hot off the waffle iron, and plan the day's adventures as you sip coffee at the two-person bar counter or the dining table for four.
Pack up the six provided beach chairs and take a short walk through the neighborhood to East Chop, Eastville, or Inkwell Beach. When you've had your fill of warm sunshine and cool surf, you can return home to a refreshing outdoor shower, a front deck with built-in bench seating, and a charcoal grill for lobster bakes with close friends and family.
As the sun begins to set each evening, you can sip cocktails, gaze at the stars, and spend time with your loved ones outside on the deck. As the parents relax, the kids can pile on the sofas in the living room for a night of DVD, Blu-ray, and cable favorites on the large flatscreen TV.
With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, Stewart Manor will sleep as many as six guests. You'll find one bedroom with a queen-size bed and two bedrooms with a pair of twin beds apiece, with new mattresses and a flatscreen TV in each room. Please note that partial AC is only provided in one of the upstairs bedrooms, and that the second level is accessed using a narrow spiral staircase.
Beloved among island locals and annual visitors alike, Oak Bluffs is a quiet and charming respite for families, beach-goers, and all lovers of Martha's Vineyard. Take leisurely walks into town to gaze at the boats in Oak Bluffs Harbor, hop a ferry to Hyannis or Nantucket, or treat your children to a ride on the Flying Horses Carousel - a historic landmark that has stood in Oak Bluffs since 1884.
Enjoy fantastic access to three of the island's most beloved beaches at East Chop, Eastville, and the Inkwell, or spend your mornings swimming in Nantucket Sound at Oak Bluffs Town Beach three-quarters of a mile from home. You'll also find miles of gorgeous sand and conditions that are ideal for windsurfing at Joseph Sylvia State Beach just three miles south.
